THIS IS THE ESSENTIAL AFTERMARKET PART!!!
Each Rad Guard comes with its own easy to read fitting instructions. The Rad Guard is cable tied on to the black fairing/cover on the bike.
Aircraft grade 6060 T1 –T5 aluminium is used to manufacture our Expanded Mesh & Frames.
The rigid frame of the Rad Guard holds the expanded mesh in place so that hard hits by stones and any other road debris will save your core from certain damage. This rigid frame also acts as a brace to prevent the radiator core from being squashed if a side impact occurs. For example, the bike falls off the stand.
The Expanded Mesh has proven to be the perfect choice of material. It is lightweight and very strong. It does NOT restrict air flow.
The Expanded Mesh sits off your radiator core by approximately 10-15mm, so even a direct hit from a stone, bird or any other road debris will save your radiator core from being damaged.
All Rad Guards come with rubber backing were necessary to alleviate any rubbing or vibration. This has already been installed on the guard.
All Rad Guards come with a 3 Year Transferable Warranty.

Great product. Fast postage. Thanks again.
I jumped on this product because it stated there was no modification to the bike and it installed on existing bolts on the frame. When I received the guards, I noticed right away there were no tabs to mount to existing bolts, of which there are two for the OEM shroud. The guards were seriously well made, powder coated, and with drain holes, but how to mount? The directions said I had to cut out a part of the shroud, drill 4 holes in it, and then zip tie the guard to the shroud. Completely opposite of the description- no mods, mounts to existing bolts. So. They could have added tabs to the guard to mount to the existing bolts (I would prefer), but there is no way to avoid a modification to the OEM shroud (I could live with a mod here).
